A grant for a six-month work, internship, or volunteer abroad program
Age: 18 – 28
Deadline: March 15, 2020
The InterExchange Foundation Christianson Fellowship awards up to $10,000 to young Americans who are passionate about helping communities abroad thrive and are eager to learn about the local culture. Fellows identify a project or an organization working on an issue they care about, and with the support of the Christianson Fellowship, contribute their skills and passion to that endeavor for at least six months on-location abroad. This intercultural experience is a meaningful way to help others, improve skills, and gain insight about another culture.
Fellows work on a wide range of multinational issues, from public health and education to legal advocacy and environmental conservation. Fellows must be willing to submit blog posts and a written report upon completion.
